  • Suddenly something has happened to me
    As I was having my cup of tea
    Suddenly I was feeling depressed
    I was utterly and totally stressed
    Do you know you made me cry? Whoa oh oh
    Do you know you made me die?

    And the thing that gets to me
    Is you'll never really see
    And the thing that freaks me out
    Is I'll always be in doubt

    It is a lovely thing that we have
    It is a lovely thing that we
    It is a lovely thing, the animal
    The animal instinct

    Woo hoo hoo
    Woo hoo hoo
    Woo hoo hoo ooh

    So take my hands and come with me
    We will change reality
    So take my hands and we will pray
    They won't take you away
    They will never make me cry, no oh whoa
    They will never make me die

    And the thing that gets to me
    Is you'll never really see
    And the thing that freaks me out
    Is I'll always be in doubt

    The animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
    It's the animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
    It's the animal, it's the animal
    It's the animal instinct in me

    It's the animal, it's the animal, it's the animal instinct in me
    The animal, the animal
    The animal instinct in me

    It's the animal, it's the animal, it's the animal instinct in me Writer/s: Dolores Mary O'Riordan, Noel Anthony Hogan
